# Kelvin to Celsius, K > °C

Converts temperature from Kelvin to degrees Celsius.

## Kelvin Temperature Scale

The Kelvin temperature scale is based on absolute zero, where zero Kelvin represents the theoretical zero point of thermal motion in matter. In this scale, temperature is measured in kelvins (K), with one kelvin equal to one-tenth of the difference between the 'triple point' of water (the temperature of equilibrium between solid, liquid, and gaseous states, 0.01°C) and absolute zero. The kelvin is the unit of temperature in the International System of Units (SI). Thus, the Kelvin scale is used in scientific calculations and technical fields where avoiding negative temperature values and requiring absolute accuracy are important.

## How to Convert Kelvin to Celsius? Formula

One Kelvin degree is equal to one Celsius degree. The only difference lies in the reference point; for Celsius, it's the freezing point of water, while for Kelvin, it's absolute zero. Therefore, to convert temperature from Kelvin to Celsius, subtract a fixed value of 273.15 from the Kelvin. For example, 300 K - 273.15 = 26.85 °C.

## Absolute Minimum Temperature in Kelvin

Absolute zero is the theoretical minimum temperature at which particles of matter cease all motion and possess no thermal energy. In the International System of Units (SI), absolute zero is defined as 0 Kelvin (K), which corresponds to -273.15 degrees Celsius or -459.67 degrees Fahrenheit. Absolute zero serves as the basis for many thermodynamic calculations and studies.
